55% of Shoppers Are Uncomfortable Giving Credit Card Info to Social Networks #Infographic

55% of Shoppers Are Uncomfortable Giving Credit Card Info to Social Networks #Infographic | Social media and education | Scoop.it

Social networks attempting to execute commerce on their sites might face some resistance, according to a new survey.

...

Despite the prevalence of social networks, consumers are still queasy about oversharing when it comes to credit card info.

That, at least, is the crux of an online survey executed by digital marketing firm Digitas and conducted by Harris Interactive in early January. Canvassing 2,247 would-be online shoppers, showed a slight majority weren’t ready to use Facebook et al. as a buying platform.

Predictably, older and richer consumers were even less apt to share such data.

 

Other factoids that emerged in the survey: People are spending almost as much time accessing social networks via their mobile devices as they do via their PCs. (Perhaps that’s not so astonishing, since other surveys have showed time on mobile devices eclipsing PC time.)

 

Another data point may be more surprising: Baby Boomers aged 45-54 — especially males — use their mobile device to access social networks more than 18-44 year-olds.

Pinterest- A Whole New Way of Engaging With Your Audience

Pinterest- A Whole New Way of Engaging With Your Audience | Social media and education | Scoop.it

Pinterest is a new way of engaging with your audience.  It's important to remember that each social network is a unique enviornment and that requires a different way of presenting content, allowing others to see different sides of you,  know who is behind your brand, what you stand for and find points of connection with you.


The other day I posted  'You Are What You Curate  -  That's Why Pinterest is so Hot' - It's a really great article and sets the tone for this new social network and how to be effective here.   http://bit.ly/xZKAM3
